The Bionic Woman #9The Bionic Woman #9
Written by Paul Tobin
Art by Juan Antonio Ramirez
Colors by Mark Roberts
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Erik Jones
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 24, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Bionic Woman #9 is pretty much the comic that fans of The Bionic Woman television series have wanted since the program aired in the 1970s. Yeah, it’s that good.

Throughout this series, writer Paul Tobin has been firing on all cylinders. This issue, is no exception. He turns in a great story and an even better script. It’s crisp, fun, fast moving, and all around great. It’s more great action and espionage for Jamie in this jam-packed with action issue. What impresses me most, though is the dialogue. It’s natural, it’s non-stop and it’s just plain fantastic. This is a great pen-ultimate chapter to this story line, and one that will have you counting the days until issue #10 is released.

Red Sonja: Atlantis Rises #4Red Sonja: Atlantis Rises #4
Written by Luke Lieberman
Pencils by Max Dunbar
Colors by Mark Roberts
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Lucio Parrillo
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: December 12, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Red Sonja: Atlantis Rising #4 is a good, solid sword and sorcery comic. If you’re looking for classic She-Devil with a sword action, this is where you’ll find it. It does have some flaws, but you can overlook most of them.

Writer Luke Lieberman knows his Red Sonja, and it’s obvious in this book. He knows the character and her universe inside and out, and that helps make this an exciting, fun read. If you haven’t read the previous issues, you may be a little lost at first, but Lieberman does a great job catching you up in a natural way, through dialogue, which is a nice treat when you compare it to the many books that have recap pages or paragraphs inside the front cover. It’s all-out action and adventure, and it flows really nicely.

The Bionic Woman #3The Bionic Woman #3
Written by Paul Tobin
Art by Leno Carvalho
Colors by Mark Roberts
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Paul Renaud
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 29, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Comics don’t come more action packed then The Bionic Woman #3. From start to finish, you don’t really get a chance to catch your breath. I’ll be honest, I’m a mark for Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers, but I can’t get over how GREAT this comic is. It’s very far removed from your average licensed spin-off.

Writer Paul Tobin makes you forget that this is a licensed comic. He turns in the latest chapter in a fantastic story that takes Jaime all over the globe, in search of a team of people who are stealing body parts to sell to the highest bidder. And now, they want to go after Jaime and her bionic limbs. The action is fast and furious and Tobin does some GREAT characterization this issue. Even though Jaime’s lost most, if not all, of her memory, Tobin really gives us a sense of just who she is and what she wants and what she’s fighting for.

The Bionic Woman #2The Bionic Woman #2
Written by Paul Tobin
Art by Leno Carvalho

Cover by Paul Renaud
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: May 30, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Poor Jamie Summers. In Bionic Woman #2, she really gets put to the test of her new “powers.” This after thinking she lost her long-time boyfriend, Steve Austin, in a tragic explosion, then surviving an accident that left her almost dead. But thankfully, she got better. Better…stronger…faster.

Author Paul Tobin knows how to write two things really well: women and action. In a world where the only super powers that the main character has is being “really strong” Tobin makes this book exciting and intriguing all at the same time. Yes, being a cyborg isn’t really a huge super power in the current comic universe, but what I love about this is that Tobin MAKES it awesome in this world. One thing that I really like about the character of Jamie Summers is that she doesn’t feel sorry for herself. There’s no “I’m a machine, not a woman” tears or breakdowns or anything like that. Just straight-up butt kicking!
